Death and funeral like remembers Michael Jackson's. Because that was on television they did so much pay tribute to his life in working all it's that. That was a big television event the death of Michael Jackson and the funeral to follow so Friday Mohammed Ali's services. And it's an arena in the global with. Regular fans is able to attend so there might be hours and hours of lines and and just lots of people wanna pay their respects also expansionist quickly to our sister station WB yen and all of our Entercom stations paying tribute to. Tom Connolly who worked here for. Forever. For Hamid for the longest time Tom Connolly was. The guy who worked here overnights. And radios and industry were overnight can be phased out because automation. Makes it so people aren't necessarily in the building all the time. And we've got WB and get a newsroom so people are here. At all times and Tom Connolly is the guy that. Ever morning I mean people talk about how what time we get into work. We get in early. But there are people that are here before us or hear through the night. And when we walk in their ready to hand us take tickets so don't miss this be sure to see this Tom Conley would find. The most. With the things he would feel fine on the Internet for us like hey former sabre saw one so. Normally. Here's what he's doing these days or not it's a bad examples is the first in the pop in a mine. Former buffalo assistant cup just like connections. Little anecdotes you always find him. There's been an incredible guy great guy that was just his life was this overnight shift and you know he was a he was a gem. For me I didn't work the radio station my college so I got here and had no idea how to run a board. And there were many times because the first shift you work when you get hired. Are usually Monday Night Football or the NBA finals or something he keeps you here to midnight and he would start at seven and leave at 5 in the morning. The number of times that I screwed something up that he paid ten. And an helped me out really and he helped the very start of my career year to learn how all this stuff works sell. Appreciate him very much a very intelligent guy that was. News great great to be around if you're young person in trying to learn about. Teach a lot of radio and he. He just he passed away recently been to seven years old so like he's he's missed around here of course and you know come and in the hours that we do not know won't mortgages up so our thoughts throughout. His family as well. It'll 30550 is our phone number 1808552. But if all right on to. Roger Goodell and his comments so it's not pressure. That the bills are and an interesting spot here it's that the rules are and inching spot comes to. Talking future of the stadium first off you can vote are Whipple at W chair by fifty dot com it's it's where would you want the stadium. This questions been asked a lot I have fun watching the numbers move. Where ordered a ban for years ago ten years ago. Where will this number B four years from today percentage that want downtown. Orchard Park or something else. Doesn't it. Doesn't that sound kind of ridiculous. The idea that you build a brand new one and you'd you'd keep it where it is 62%. To 62%. Voting in our website want it downtown. It's one of those things where if you say it. Yeah the bills are gonna build a new 637. Million dollar facility. In now Orchard Park why why why why would they do that. When I think about what I want the stadium to be there's one really important thing I want mass transit which more than I want any other feature of I want the ability for. People to going to be safer and hotel heeding his fallen. But if biking and go down and still hang out and get home safely without haven't worry about anybody anybody. Driving the dead that's an ideal scenario so the fewer people that are driving near the better safety would obviously be good location downtown. Ease of access all these things are important and Roger Goodell from the sound of it. Speaking at Jim Kelly's goal term yesterday favors. Downtown. Wouldn't to think that the goal is would favor downtown they've got what it amounts to be. A campus being built TomTom like this there's more and more the perched on the of those sabres are purchasing another property. You've got a campus down there you've got. But good swath of blocks that appear to be either vacant or on their way to being vacant and it would make sense for the city says. Try and do something good with the realistic it's down there so I think about the pressure that's been put on the bills from the leaks sample and one of the quotes from Goodell. What does it take to make sure the bills remain here on a successful basis that's the objective and I know that's their commitment we fully support that. We have league funding that's available to help that kind of circumstance now on it to be successful a lot of these threats that. It's almost like the the league has. They roll out the same sentences that they did when Ralph Wilson junior when the ownership was different and they did still hold the same power. Will it make sure the bills can states can stay here and be successful. Three Google ownership we would think that's a veiled threat to leave. That's you try to tell us he can't why can I be successful here this team makes money you're trying to threaten me into building you'll palace. Because you can't make enough money here. Now all I read that statement I think I had a can be successful here and we know that they are successful here in any thought about. The long term viability long term future I've. There's any bills fan feel the least bit. Nervous the least bit anything about the long term viability long term future the threats have been removed. So instead of pressure instead of threatening this time which it used to be a lot of that a lot of veiled threats may be some not so veiled threats. Now what it is if if you in my opinion reading between the lines. Matthew what it is now is this is the lead every time the league urges them to get moving. It's effectively the league's saying. Remember we talked about that's been ranked. Use we've we talked about this you guys are gonna do this for us because we approved your sell the team you own them now. And we talked about the assault. No pressure no poll this is a couple that. That they've talked about marriage they both wanna get married and one side says like art you know I think it's time or Europe we've talked of. Our kids. We haven't started the process of trying yet but right. I'm not pressuring ya I'm just saying that both sides kinda know what the deal is and one side is saying. It would be nice to see some planning but the difference between now and back in Ralph Wilson still on the team is just that. Roger Goodell is comments there would have had us going. And now I think it's just telling us stuff that we already know. They we already knew as soon as the team was purchased by the burglars that is stadium was going to be a major part of the conversation. And that it was finally going to be real because for a really long time it was new stadium out of and a stadium probably not we'll see new stadium I don't know statin getting kind of old but. We don't know what's gonna happen with ownership so whatever. And now as soon as I mean they want when they by the team it's worth staying day to its stadium. Ran. We got there such a long time ago that all the things that Roger Goodell is saying whether it's. I also think the way he talks. About stadiums is always. Ominous just all of course like he is constantly. Dealing with these sort of situations but they're usually much worse than where buffalo Lewis in Minnesota. There roof fell lane. You can't play there anymore so it's you've got to build a stadium or you're going somewhere. And if there is any threat level to this from Roger Goodell. We could just shrug because they're not going to move the team and it was kind of in the plans anyways I think the conversation comes down to. Not whether it's gonna happen but how we wanna X acute or. There is the option of continuing to renovate it's been. It's done I just don't think that's in the cards. You if you are a new owner think about is to think about what you are you're a new owner of an NFL team you get to do whatever you wanna do here. It is all up to you and. You get to put your footprint on this day it's your franchise Craig you didn't start the franchise but. I don't know if you bought the bills. And I think everyone would come in and change is stadium changed uniforms changes as this but. If you own the team wouldn't should you'd say. Am a sort do some things I always kinda wanted to get done and whether that's building a bill hall of fame or whatever it might be in Robert Kraft. By the patriots and the organization is completely transformed what will the sabres have had. A pretty good degree of transformation they've taken a different direction they take in a direction that the ownership the previous ownership. Had never done in a much that they would have the the patience to try. To just you know you buy a house. You know payment yeah Pedro was non on on all SRI these walls are fine no you're gonna. You're gonna go in there and do the things that you want to do do it. While you all year metaphor there is. Do I wanna. Keep our house I think there's a show OK I know there's a show because I've been forced to watch it OK I enjoy it. On the housing network there where they play. Will rebuild your house or this person will try to sell you on another house he seamless yeah. In this kind of what is right equipment okay we're gonna renovate this and make it look beautiful. And you can stay in your same spot which seems to work. Or here's some other spots that you could go to him and in this case Orchard Park whether you're building a new one or whether you're renovating it. Or downtown. And I think there are pluses and minuses to I think there'll be some disappointment if it's not in downtown house that they can be cheaper it's not in downtown. Right and then there won't be any issues with giving people bear a fair if it's an Orchard Park. I just wanna see the money line. The Moneyline on whether they get a new one or they renovate and the money line on where this is adding bulls are incredibly prohibitive favorites for new one. And downtown. To the the point where ten dollars on the other side. It's gonna gets a lot but I wouldn't waste the ten dollars and just. Just meet just just convinced of what they want. What they have already kind of agreed to and that's to me that's it is that when buying the team this would have been discussed it's not always public. It's not always publicly discuss that should say. Public funding will be talked about but. Roger Goodell mentioned the G four availability of that loan that is a NFL loan you take out as a team and you pay back. Not all stadiums. Are getting massive public funding not all of them you've got some. Where the situation is unique enough for the ownership is strong enough Robert Kraft is great example this he funded patriot place himself. And that is all the middle of nowhere that's not downtown Boston hmm but that was a situation we're crafts kind of suggested he might move the team. And then ultimately went to screw it this noble thing and built all thing. So that is available for some owners. You whether it's through property tax breaks city whatever the brakes on actually come inside the stadium there's lots of different ways to get around it. But in terms of ponying up money. I just I'm choosing not to freak out about what will be asked until we have some idea of what well it's the same conversation about PS cells Matthew. We we went through a time in sports were PS cells especially Cowboys Stadium right 125000. Dollars for a PS Celtic do you think I'm not. Could have a mortgage for my tickets to us the football stadium. If you look at Minnesota and the PS cells there most of them. Are fairly affordable 600 balks for PS on the 300 global onetime payment. European cell and that was a hundred million dollars worth of the stadium funding was PS cells in X number of dollars. People don't like to pay the part with their money why would day it's an extensively sports are expensive tickets are expensive ticket prices go up we we know all that. But when it comes to this. The PSL boogie man is often overblown along a lot with the public funding Bogeyman. Wait until you actually see what the asking is if there's an ass of 171000. Dollar PS cells well. Freak out. But until then I just wouldn't oversell what would be asked of the fan. I think more in that spot with everything with everything to do with the new stadium is everybody is way concede. China too little and our thumbs give us the numbers give us where it's going to be give us the proposal. Give us the renderings you love render. Let it let us see a plan. On the table. To decide how we feel about it because if you were talking about very little public funding. With some changes to infrastructure. For a downtown stadium people would overwhelmingly safe are pilots do it. But you talk about X number of public dollars to be talking about not big changes right away on how to get down there in where park. Mean talking about taking a sabres game and multiplying by three or four. That's I mean how are we gonna do that where we gonna put it sell. Three times a sabres crowd can get down. Town I mean it's very challenging. So when it comes of the PS cells the same conversation to me. The only thing that is completely off the table in my mind that I am not worried about in this latest is the tail gating talk. I know that there are a lot of people that love the tailgate I know that there are people that are proud of that atmosphere. It is not part of the equation for me. Well the thing that so gaining has its place you know I think that has its place. Our corporate suites. Can they get enough. Companies. To shell out the money for corporate suites and a big jewel downtown stadium because. The tailgating Matthew here's the question hey can we get people to follow us around outside and bring Beers with them and drink before the games yes. Yes you can do what what are we need to do build them a parking lot and they'll show up. All right check tailgate we can have tell beating about corporate suites we currently sell this many at this rate. Can we sell the same number at double the price than. Don't tell we can do that Kenya throw guy threw a flaming table. That would be the question that again important that all follow you. Can we get the flaming tables and the power bombs in the tables ladders and chairs matches in the dark parking lot yes yes we can do that in Batavia we can get an Orchard Park. We can do that in. Wherever. Where when it went to talk comes from Roger Goodell like this you you can tell me which way you feel because I think that everyone sort of waivers. It's stadium talk between. Excited and nervous. And that's kind of where I am too that the idea of the downtown stadium in another element of it is. Downtown stadium could have more events spiritually and as the Belmont could have more events than a stadium. In Orchard Park it could mean more to the community than the current football stadium does where it got the high school games. And it's got the football games and it might have been Rolling Stones concert which was amazing but that's pretty much yet. And a downtown stadium might be more accessible might be more utilized by the community. So that's exciting that idea and like what's going on in downtown being rebuilt and and then there's. The let's another way to get public funding is to say we rule it will be also used for blank am I mean you can have. More concerts maybe you guys it's hard to sell up that many. Well again but maybe you talk about car shows and and this is this a different sort of this is what the NFL wants every time. The Roger Goodell or anyone speaks on this whether it's. The giants owner of the cowboys owner. It's that analogy it's. And take one step further you're already engaged it's been decided. It's time to pick a date and it's time to say. All right we're looking at 20/20 two were looking at 2021. July opening up we're looking at anything. Renderings the supposed to be this committee we don't hear much about how the committee meets we don't hear much about anything on the stadium planning to. I think the NFL is essentially saying. Hey it's cool no rush bought if you could go ahead and give me some idea. Of when you're gonna do with the thing. Then we all talked about you doing. That'd be great. 8030550. KR golf tournaments coming up don't forget about that. Matthew what are you know about the WGR golf tournament. I know that. People are gonna pay the most for me right to gulf would mean. And that it's a fifties theme yes the fifties being I don't know what to do with the fifties themed I Wear like Fedora.

Medical rant I should I shouldn't say and told questions he's disappointed. To have had surgery. What I mean is he's disappointed that he needed surgery and now that.

Jeremy why Matthew collar here on WGR. We talk a little hockey in the first hour we're gonna do more at 9 o'clock both enter Peterson Gregory are jumping in an hour early. They'll roundtable on the sharks and penguins. And the number one thing I want all of Auburn up at them and I'm Matthews will we talk on the first hour which is. This bull sharks and penguins are great possession teams have elite level talent the sabres they have their elite talent as well it's growing. About how to they take the next step what moves can be made in the next month basically to get them closer to close the gap on those teams that are the real contenders so we'll talk about that with. Andrew and Cragg I also want you know to Patrick lining said. That's not magic lining is this second overall pick probably. Tibi Austin Matthews wanna Patrick whiny to lying has had such a strong close to the season slash tournament. He's then moving up a bit it was the Big Three Matthews line a ploy Yardley that it became. Maybe Matthews in line and for some Scott saline they should go number one he. Compared. This is lying he compared. Matthews and himself right so Austin Matthews and I. Are kind of like Toews and all basket. Now I don't know if he's throwing sheep there. To use a term the kids use. But he says in five is they'll take him five years he'll be like oh that's been who is of course the greatest scorer of this generation. And Toews is a hall of fame for a player as well but. Needle Toews is tapes. Toews is what every player aspires to be because he's captain boring wins all the time. And scores in the playoffs sometimes. Paves is like if you say I am like Toews nobody's gonna get mad at you. But Lyonnais. To a degree he's doing it more than Michael did Michael set I believe on the best player in this draft lining is even more so. He's got done. Swagger he's got confidence he's not afraid to say I'm gonna be old facts get in five years. Cinch thing because it. You know the Finnish players that he usually not hot like that usually the Finnish players are kind of introverted like restless for the line and they can while from the cabinet. Come out of his shell a little bit very early on Hughes and closed off and old Leo Levy told all company thinks he's the best defenseman in the draft so. Maybe either the as a change of culture their I don't know but. With one NAIC what he's getting I mean if you watched him at all he loves the line up the metal that can spot and has what spots that yeah. The off wing I'll spot I don't aren't Lego. And never let him enough and I'm not Politico. But god but he he loves the fire away and he's a goal score and he knows what he hits and with the Austin Matthews. He's going to be Toronto's big time two way center. I think with the comparison that's all he's really getting an. Its interest thing that he would be. There's that straightforward way I'm a big time goal scorer and that it you know I mean they had to say unlike the best school score on the go out there and take big shot that score I mean like it it. Forthright of him to say that but I mean I don't know its controversial at all in their day I think it's clear that one is it to a senator and the other is a big time scoring Winger. I read an article from Forbes. The perfect storm that's kinda killing the NHL's ratings in the Stanley Cup final and them point was it's been a good and interesting and fun series. But they're been a couple of factors that are working against the NHL. That of the broadcast he'll be one of them the NBA being another and I sort of thing about the bomb locked the NHL's had. And it really does come down this is where Imus say it's bad luck. Meet David going to Edmonton was bad lock him. Even Matthew is going to Toronto. Is kind of bad luck. Lining going to Winnipeg might be worse that's what I was getting to lining to Winnipeg is the worst lock possible especially if he's got a personality US. Hockey fans will never see Patrick lining play. When if they put Canadian teams on US television night in Toronto. Montreal gets on a couple times maybe throttle a couple times Vancouver Edmonton Calgary Winnipeg. Ottawa never. You will not on this current television deal. I bet you don't see Patrick lining play more than twice. Unless of course he's playing the sabres so do you really think that this has been an interest things series because I I think it's in his news I do not think it's been an interest in series. The article from Forbes refer to it as one for the ages and I thought that I don't I don't know how you get there. I think it's been a castles the most interesting part of the entire series to me he is he's the narrative. Anti hot dog eating destroying. Superstar right now he's maybe get a win the Conn smythe. And you know we we've talked a few times about that the fund Twitter account old takes exposed. Which at its go back and find people or wrong and reach Sweden say I'd take it out you got the strong for instance I'm probably gonna get one because I picked the sharks in six. I'm wrong. It's fine. I can't wait. For the counseling. When Phil Kessel when the Conn smythe trophy which. He's got to be the favorite to win right now I think so yeah when he wins the Conn smythe. In his first year with the penguins. The old takes exposed all of Toronto. And all of the can't win with this guys stuff. It's gonna be well in fact early meet 11 o'clock consequence but it's gonna be delicious to kind of just pour over that read about hot dogs read about how this guy is. What what average every single adjective out of shape not that good can't win with this guy and he's going to take home the Conn smythe trophy. It reminds me a little bit about how sports is becoming. More and more like video games than it ever was for what you shoot threes would step Currie and video games 900 times and he does it. You go for a fort down every time and now teams are starting to do it more and learn about it. And the of the thing you would do his trade for someone like Phil castle because he's fast and scores of budget goals and year. Taught by the media to think that he's gonna destroy your locker room if you really had him but he's great on a video game while. All it really means is he wasn't the franchise player but he's still great with this series overall I agree that that's probably the number one narrative. The story I mean yeah. Others that I mean Sidney Crosby hasn't played great audience court I mean like the there have been hardly any goals at one team is crush the other team right. It's tough to say. I think it's tough to say a series has been great when there hasn't even banned. A game. With lead changes can make it one game. With a lead change. I know it's it's the way the sport is right now. 8030551808552. By fifty white lines on the way we're gonna check in. With Austin I'm so often massive with I was and is being read between Ross Matthews is so this. We're gonna take itself apart your community fifteen. He was at the Jim Kelly golf tournament and some of the things that came out of their interest including a story from Roger Goodell. You can either check it out or website W cheer 550 dot com or. Went for self tells story he joins us any fifteen cracker bay and injure Peters and nine a hockey talk in roundtable on the way as well why airlines next. And my gonna whine about gives the lie about Matthew. Anything good really good one about. I've got to. Go a couple things. I'm sure the call is great right the one on call today. They give me that look. Bible here. As this word murder I don't think you're and in some want to learn new interplay between the locals than it did come on well. He moved inward and you're currently while much ardent. Music. I'll ask you all went. The first oil exporter. Mega that's Metallica. You know Warner and earning her more like what am in the script seriously let's move false on our. All of your metal would be eager seen neighbors you know what do you think went into world war. I said. Yeah it. More metal. At the sabres game I do like the goal song sabres goals on and it's good. And you worked. I think dividends. Mean they're not taking my personal playlist now now they're doing what kind of make sense for the audience that they have. Yes indeed been sort of announcement. Right it ditched it should still be their goals. But they've got now is fine I don't think what they have now worked out really well should they could stand us for a few more goals that would help. That would help I here's my line. Registration of of this nobody makes game is that it wind just kind of funny so this is from and Tom Moran writes the story of senator nick it's qatari. He is the lawyer and a senator he is the author of a bill that would legalize marijuana sales in New Jersey. He says he's never tried it. About Howard's not here because I'm I'm more relate to stand. These is never tried it so he's going to Colorado. That just. Smoke marijuana. The report he is a senator from New Jersey is going to Colorado where has been legalized and state level and this is readily available. Old place sorry guys I don't wanna do it but I've really got I doubt I'm gonna go to Colorado and he's gonna should probably figure out what it does TU. I'm going to do a little reconnaissance. Right. I've been safe and Howard for twelve years again you're going to ending its stake as you'd like to drink Beers now as part Howard. I'm doing show research I've got to know. How can I talk about think Tuesday I'm gonna talk about Saint Patrick's Day or. Going to bills games and sit in the last row and now is show research men on dedicated to my work here that I'm not fun no. Not you're not enjoying it of course welts occasionally but I am you're going to fine you doing reporting investigated right work for as good of buffalo near betterment of this show I'm always thinking about ways to make the show better about leaving it. Sorry. So I don't show research and now you've got this New Jersey senator. I'm go to Colorado. Because I've sponsored a bill. The legal substance I've never dog ever gonna for. I'm going to Colorado go good luck you know I don't how how was it senators to Tariq Ali hasn't returned yet he is ski instructor now. He lives in Colorado full time year round and he he just plays guitar on the side of the road and skis all day. Senators qatari he resigned his position last week. It's chill research from senators are I'm actually gonna buy that he has not done it before. Right because. Who says something like that it. A person and a person that works in a state with Chris Christie who claims he would have a rest of Laramie console on the spot. That guy. I mean this guy is it and if you. If you've never done it before I could see you saying something that ridiculous. Like talk about being in a square. The people call people squares anymore from his Asia. Only square people are you square yes. He balked at such a I I just I love that story. What a fun I should put in the body next game but I did not a new Jersey state senator going to Colorado to get high for research on a legalization bill. And he's gonna expands it to Levitt talk shows New Jersey are really mad about that at a really right. He's sure Gannett for sure and expense that. It'll expense report will be hilarious right Aaliyah to read those and so forth you know string cheese. One thing may be we talk about tomorrow we've got other stuff to get to cells coming up next segment for a good story and Roger Goodell in. A hockey roundtable on a benign as we are 31 of the finals. Golden State the warriors are they appear to be on their way to their second title they will have to start paying some of these players. What would happen if the warriors became a team that my generation of sports fans has never seen. And by that I mean the fight go to Wikipedia and look at the list of NBA finals champions there's a stretch were like the Celtics won eight in a row. And I think and what was that like. What happened. Today in the modern sports Serra if a team won six in a row or something like that. With the sport be better for it or with the sports suffer all these sports love to talk parity right parity this parity that Gary Bettman. Says it's virtually impossible for a team to repeat Neeon in the NHL and he touts that is a sign of success that's a good thing. If the warriors. Keep this team together and with. Staff occurring in Klay Thompson they identify those big two maybe dram on green in time walks in the find someone else that they can do with similar job. What if they won. About four or five to six in a row. How would the sports world view. We did see something sort of like this the New York Yankees in 96 through. 2001. They won four of them and then the lost one in 2001. Think that there is a threshold for that. If you get to three. It's like well three feet. In the NBA three is not unheard of it's actually been fairly recent the lakers did three right from the bull the bulls of course did three twice but I will say though by that third one for the lakers. I was checked out. The second one for the lakers as a while back to back that's really something Shaq man what a character but by the third one. I don't care about this anymore and I and I just want somebody else to win because this is that they just looks unstoppable. That what's the point of watching this if we know the lakers are gonna win from the very beginning. And you could see Golden State especially the rain goes to like the wizards or something. Mean that was the only team that looked formidable for them was with Westbrook and Durant and OKC and you could see it happening with. Two with 34 championships here I don't. I think that it becomes good for the sport next year maybe you get one more build up to LeBron and curry but after they've just smack them down here. If they sweep especially that story line kinda goes away. So the only ones left is it to Randall Westbrook stay together in OKC and then that'll be the build up. And if they win another one after that then you've gotten to boredom now. Grow what you need is you need another at least someone that you believe can take him down now again this could be their title this year and then. Next year they get bounced in the second round because they have a bad shooting series and if you happen. But I've never know I'm trying to think college sports has this a little bit. Consecutive championships approaching what used to happen in the 60s70s. Just doesn't happen in the Stanley. It four time for a row Stanley Cup winners now. Bettman says it's a good thing it's virtually impossible for who I think we got tired out of Chicago even. After they had won three in five years I did get tired of Chicago but the reason I got tired of Chicago's because they're talked about as the super impressive and and dynamic team and they are until they have a lead and then they shot things. They really do. All right it with real 550 suck podshow joins us next we'll get a good story about Roger Goodell from his time before he was commissioner what he learned from. Of those old bills teams it's on the way and not talk to sell about the latest Tyrod Taylor said because his contract. Doesn't appear to be stressing him too much.
